When you have multiple concerns with the appearance of your smile, you could talk to our team about porcelain veneers. These thin and lifelike restorations can transform the shape and color of your teeth, addressing multiple cosmetic issues at once. In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist explains how veneers offer such an improvement.
The Cosmetic Potential of Porcelain Veneers
Each porcelain veneer covers the front and sides of the tooth, instantly changing the shape and color and addressing multiple cosmetic issues. For example, we can reshape malformed teeth, repair cracks or chips, and add length to worn down tooth structures too. Placement could close embarrassing gaps between the teeth and also mask permanent teeth stains, the kind that may not respond to most teeth whitening treatments. Our team could even correct the appearance of your smile’s alignment, so you avoid the need for braces or aligners.
Creating Custom Restorations
To ensure they look natural and provide a comfortable fit and balanced bite, each one will be custom-made for your smile. To begin, we will gently numb the teeth receiving the restoration and remove a thin layer of outer enamel from them. Once we do, our team can take detailed digital images of these prepared teeth, using the digital impression to design and fabricate custom porcelain restorations. The material not only ensures daily bite forces with ease, but we can color match them to blend with your smile. We may even whiten your teeth to ensure they blend with your brightest possible smile!
Attaching Your New Smile
When the veneers are complete, you will return to the office so we can attach them with a powerful binding agent. Once in place, they can last for years to come and offer a lifelike appearance. To keep them bright and safeguard the teeth we’ve attached them to, you need to practice good oral hygiene. For example, you need to brush and floss daily, cut back on sugary and starchy foods and drinks, and also make time for a checkup and cleaning with our team. These actions also protect missing teeth from issues like tooth decay and gum disease, and keep them bright too.
If you have any questions about porcelain veneers, or about any of our other cosmetic treatment options, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to ensure you never hesitate to show off your smile again!
